5:10 am
warmer temperature. we started that trend yesterday. i think we maxed out on monday with the fog and low clouds. temperatures now are starting to recover a little bit so some patchy fog. and what is there could be a little thick in spots. it's starting to get closer to the ground. thick morning fog tomorrow. and it looks mostly sunny because there could be tropical clouds coming in. i'll mention it because it will probably move into the nevada area and for maybe south part of our viewing area. but the temperatures continue the trend up. and we'll continue that as well. high pressure is building ever so slowly. but it's been in the middle of the country and in the east. we're not getting a howling north wind. but there are signs that we're starting to get a little bit of a north wind. and upper 80s and 90s inland. and the low clouds and fog are losing out to a north breeze. 57 seems popular now.
